William Hammcrsteln Is 111 at home and was not on tho roof of tho Victoria Theatre, which lost night opened Its elevators to bring up that part of tho New York public which loves to mount skyward In tho summer. Tho roof was familiar In that It still possessed Its farm on the clc vul on at the back, but It was the oppor tunity to dance under tho stars that made the resort novel. There was the customary lively stage programme, nnd the audience found the succeeding nets especially well suited to such an auditorium. The man who had saved 137 lives (sen programmo). by hams John F. Conroy, who was accom panied by a troupe of women divers; tho Ahearn bicycle, company, an open air pantomime called "Adam nnd Eve" and the organization of negro singers and actors culled "Tho Darktown Follies," all of them well suited to an entertainment In tho more or less open air, wro features. It took tho genius of Mr. HammetHteln to suggest this grand series of moral and Instructive pantomimes' as the attraction on n roof garden programme He began with the representation of the story of Adam nnd Kve and will doubtless carry this noblo artistic purpose to Its end by following up with the other Imixirtant events of history. Such a course will make his roof garden not only the abode of art nnd beauty but of culture and knowledge as well. The first effort In this direction took place last night, and tho audience showed undoubted Interest In tho proceedings. Ho Mr. Hammer stein's series of pantomimes promises to be successful. The sceno yesterday showed the Oar- den of Kden according to the late ltroad- way and l'Orty-scconrt street standards of nrt.

In com- pressed form, the production was brought down to the Victoria for the summer. It Is chiefly tho vivacity of tho performers that recommends them to n different public irom inai oororo wnicn they won their success last winter. It Is not only the work of tho stage manager which bus accomplished this result: the enthusiasm and exuberance of the actors In tho lead ing roles as well as In the chorus aro the real causes or the unusual spirit and ani mation of this episode. The summer cur. den has never opened with a better programme. SHERLOCK TO LIVE . HERE, DOYLE HINTS Great Detective May Deduct and Smile Over Central Of fice lllunders. PICTURES WITH A PURPOSE.

The next we may hear from Sherlock Holmes he'll bo In New Tork In rooms with Dr. Watson somewhere about Wash ington Square and smiling wearily over the blunders of our Central Olllce men as ho lays down his fiddle and reaches for the needle. Sir Arthur Connn Doyle, packing up last night to leave this city, didn't actually go so far as to say that he was going to bring Sherlock over and turn him loose In an American atmosphere, but there was a palpable hint of It. Sir Connn has discovered that New York presents some new and re markable opportunities for the fiction writer, and a good part of bis stay here has been spent In absorbing tho sort of local color that goes with his work. Kvery once In a while an Englishman stays more than twenty-four hours here nnd goes away with kind words for our city. Eery once In a while a Briton, after deep thought, fancies that New York can bo mentioned In the same breath with I-omlon. Sir Conan Is one of these. He sntd to u reporter for Tm: Sun at tho Hotel I'laza last night: "I glvo you my, word, old chap, I've never had a better time In my life. I've made scores of friends, nnd It seemed as If your entire city was determined to to show mo about to see that I over looked nothing. I've enjoyed every hour of my visit. I regret slr.ceroly that Lady Doylo and I must leave. Last night at your Coney Island they shot me down tho chutes, bumped me over amazing places, dazzled my eyes with extraor dinary spectacles and regaled me with curious drinks. What a place!" Sir Conan and Lady Doyle leave over tho New York Central this morning at s o'clock for Lake George, where they Iwll stay for a day or so recuperating from the strain of sight seeing In New York and In visiting places of historic Interest. They will then go to Montreal and visit nround among the maritime provinces for a few days. The next stago of their American tour will be a trip over tho Grand Trunk Ilallroad to Edmonton, In Alberta. Sir Conan was asked If he was going after big game. "I fancy the llles will do all tho big game hunting." he said. "But I Bhall provide mself with ointments and nets and such things." The Doylcs will havo a look at the Canadian Hockles and will then return to Uuebcc, where they will take ship for England on July 4. Last night they entertained friends at the Hotel i'laza. The Sociologist Again la Presented on thn Films, Two theatres which never before had a film on their consciences yesterday fell before the advance of the conquering movies. The Cort Theatre exhibited a sociological film play called "The Es cape," by Taul Armstrong. The drama was seen last September at tho Lyric Theatre and did not Impress tho publlo at that time as either sociological or In teresting. But It was mado the' excuse for it series f pictures preceding the revelation of the photographs of tho melo drama N which were a singular substitute for entertainment. Tho processes of reproduction In the lowest forms f animal life were re vealed with the object of proving that the utmost care wns taken by nature even here to attain the perfection of type. Then the skeletons of frogs nnd sheep we.ro ndded tho list of microbes nnd other low to.rp of life that wero thrown on tho screen. Finally the care taken In breeding dogs and horses brought the first part of the entertainment to u oloso. It was a gay llttlo Introduction to Mr. Armstrong1 melodrama, which was quite an drab nnd monotonous In action as It was In the pictures yesterday. Alt the scenes of the. play a well as the fattening, which Is customary on the films, was very well produced. The comic relief was pro vlded by some good old manipulation of a beer bottle. That was better, however, than the combination of gloom and mi crobes. Nobody could lnugh at the frisk ing of the merry little amak over tho screen or take pleasure In tho revels of any of the other cellular actors In tho protoplasmic first part. Nor was It en tertaining to see a boy, even In the sacred cauae of eugenics, wring n cat'o neck. Tho Strand Theatre had that historic American play "Hearts of Oak" for Its attrnotlon. Itnlph Stuart, who has often played tho leading role in this drama of Jntnes Hearne's, wns there on the screen yesterday. The music of the Strand Thea tre ntwnys helps to entertain Its imtrons, vho oeem to like also the theatre's policy of changing It play every week, D'ANNUNZIO MOVIE AT KNICKERBOCKER Elaborate Production of Italian, Toet's Play With Spe cial Music.

Manufaclur0rt Indianapolis, IndiiBa There's only one scientific way to build a light "Six" and that's the Studebaker way the man ufactured way. Studebaker, literally, gets lightness with doubled or trebled strength by heat treating the steels. The other way the danger ous and weakening way is to assemble parts not heat treated, and get light ness by reducing size. Or, sometimes, a so-called light "Six" is simply n "Six" slightly smaller than n large "Six" n;id practically as heavy. The Studebaker SIX, moreover, is perfectly aligned, perfectly lubricated, perfectly balanced. Thus friction and vibration are re duced and long life promoted. The owner of the Studebaker Sight SIX, therefore, gets greater value than can be given with smaller production, in which any lowering of price neces sarily means a lowering of quqlity.
